Devonly Voices is a 60-strong choir based in Totnes, while The Singers Upstairs is a 35-strong choir based in Ashburton. Choir members come from all over South Devon including Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Ivybridge, Newton Abbot, Ashburton and Totnes. The choirs are directed by Vicky Hadland and co-directed by Tao Hinton.
The emphasis is on having fun singing together in harmony. Our gatherings are informal and friendly and new members are always welcome. We even have a tea break! This gives us a chance to get to know each other even better.
Although many members have joined the choir from Vicky’s ‘Enjoy Your Voice’ classes, you don’t have to be an experienced singer to join in. All you need is the willingness to give it a try...
We learn by ear which means no written music although there are word sheets. We sing a wide variety of songs including rounds and harmonies from all around the world, contemporary, pop, gospel and doowap. Many of the arrangements are by Vicky and Tao.
We perform regular gigs and concerts, many for charity and to support the community. Devonly Voices raises over £1500 each year through its annual Concerts and Cabaret Evenings in support of WaterAid, ShelterBox, Rowcroft Hospice and other local charities.
We meet every Thursday evening in term times (please check for dates) from 7-9pm at The Totnes Natural Health Centre on The Plains, Totnes. Session costs £7.
